Quick regedit question

I just installed new video drivers and they have reset some of my settings. When running games in 3D my overscan settings reset themselves and the image appears smaller than it should. I found a fix but I am not sure how to implement it properly as I am a regedit newb.

I found a fix for the overscan issue

Go to the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\video{####....}\0000

Create a new DWORD:

"DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan" = dword 0x0000


Note: there might be several {####....} , should be the one with most of the ATI settings.
Now I am pretty sure I am in the right place. I right-click and select create a new Dword and label it 'DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan'. Now I am not sure where that stuff after the equal sign is meant to go. I right click on it and go to modify but it won't let me type it out. It will only let me type the letter d for some reason. I tried copy pasting it in there but it comes out incorrectly. If someone could just quickly tell me how to fix this I would be eternally grateful.

Change the base to Decimal and enter 0.

You shouldn't even need to change the base or value. It's saying to set the value of the DWORD that you just created to zero (shown as "0x00000000 (0)" in regedit) which the default value should be anyway.

In other words, go to the location "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\video\{####....}\0000", create a DWORD, rename it to "DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan" and you're done.

Thanks but that didn't work. Maybe it is in the wrong spot. It says to put it with most of the ATI settings which is vague because I can't see any ATI settings in any of the options.

That is where I am putting it. Surely that would be the place? I might just whack it in all of the places and see what happens.

You cut out the only important bit, the folder list type part on the left that actually shows where you are. Also, did you restart since creating the DWORD?

Nope no restart. The path is exactly as described in the fix. There are other places to put them in as per the pic but they make no mention of ATI.

I will try a restart now.
